Ham Radio was a passion of John’s, and the Ham Radio Community would also like to honor John, who passed away on June 20, 2022. He held a lifelong interest in amateur radio. His call letters, W9BFO, held significance within the amateur radio community.
“We will always remember John Warren for his willingness to help and his gentle spirit. Every year he worked hard to make the Village look magical during the holidays.
